Renamed in 1989 as a tribute to Louis Delgrès, a free man of color that fought against Napoleon’s General Antoine Richepanse to prevent the return of slavery to the island, the circle of stones with a large statue of Delgres’ head in the middle on the slopes of a hill in Guadeloupe is a must-see when visiting the island. Delgrès was a distinguished soldier who led a rebellion of civilians and soldiers of color in a battle against French troops. When defeat was becoming certain, he and number of his men opted to blow up themselves, the Danglemont Plantation, and as many French soldiers as possible rather than surrender.
